PHYLIP-GUI-Tool (PHYGUI): adapting the functions of the graphical user interface for the PHYLIP package
Author(s) Yukinori Eguchi
ABSTRACT
The PHYGUI for the PHYLIP package is a simple and user-friendly piece of software that acts such as a Windows based graphical-user-interface for the PHYLIP phylogenetic data analysis package. PHYLIP is a useful and powerful tool for phylogenetic research that is regretfully operated using a character-user-interface. Therefore, PHYLIP is difficult for beginner level users. The PHYGUI for PHYLIP adds a GUI function, which makes it a more user-friendly and powerful tool. PHYGUI runs on multiple platforms such as MS-Windows and X windows on Mac OS-X and Linux systems and is mainly operated using a mouse. The input data file and the output result data files can be viewed and edited using internal or ex-ternal text editors, which can be accessed via a button on the PHYGUI for PHYLIP.
